HDH #26


It's Wednesday again, and you know what that means:)  Yes, your next look at my latest wip:)  For more HDH fun, click here.

Again, this is day #2 after Hunter and Kayla's breakup.  If you remember from 2 weeks ago, she woke up and 'heard' Hunter in her head while she went through her morning routine.  Here is Hunter, having 2nd thoughts about his decision.  Sorry; this is slightly long.

“Do we have to go to dinner?  I was hoping to go home and relax with a beer while watching the Cardinals game.”
           
Gail twisted her pretty face into a pout.  “I was hoping for that new seafood place.  Don mentioned it at lunch today; he and Drew are meeting a client tonight.  You know what they say; surround yourself with like-minded people in order get ahead.”  She slid into his lap and twined her arms around his neck.
            
Crap.  The last thing I feel like doing is watching Don schmooze a client.  But Gail’s right.  I’ve got to start acting like I deserve that promotion.
            
“Okay.  What time are we supposed to be there?”
            
A slow smile spread across her face.  “Are we all alone in the office?”  Her fingers unbuttoned his shirt and slipped beneath his undershirt.
           
“Not exactly.”
            
“We could go to my office and close the door.”  Gail’s fingers found his nipple and lightly stroked.
            
Oh boy.  “Gail, your office is a glass cube.  And if Drew’s still up there….what do you suggest, we do this under your desk?”
            
“Where’s your sense of adventure?”  She withdrew her hands and stood up, smoothing her skirt.  “Fine, we’ll table this for another time.  Maybe we can both stay late on Friday, and christen your cubical?  Or maybe after you get that promotion we’ll have some fun in your new office upstairs.”

            
A flashback of Kayla spread out on the conference table in the afterglow assaulted Hunter’s brain.  Can’t think of that now.  He swallowed.  “One step at a time, Gail.  It hasn’t been offered yet.”

Kenzie is also participating this week with another installment of Anatomy of an Affair.  Don't forget to stop by and see her!

This Gail is hot for him. But I can tell she's after something other than just sex...

Poor Gail is asking for trouble, rejection is hard.
